Nick Diaz is still in the USADA testing pool despite claiming to have no interest in fighting again. In the past, Diaz made it clear through the power of social media that he’s in party mode right now and has no interest in fighting.
For years now, fight fans have wanted to see the older Diaz brother compete once again. However, the chances of that happening are unlikely.
Diaz has not been seen in the Octagon since his bout with Anderson Silva in January 2015. This fight was later overturned to a no-contest after Silva tested positive for banned substances. Several months ago, it was reported that Diaz would fight Jorge Masvidal at the UFC 235 pay-per-view event. However, that fight was never officially booked.
Aaron Bronsteter mentioned in a recent post on his official Twitter account that Diaz is still in the testing pool and recently submitted his first test of the year. He wrote the following:
“Nick Diaz is still in the USADA testing pool and recently submitted his first test of 2019.”
Bronsteter also noted that USADA has tested Hannah Cifers and Francis Ngannou six times already this year. Adesanya has been tested five times, and Jon Jones four.
